It is clear through these Last Seven Words, that while Jesus is dying, He is teaching us how to deal with real life issues. From the Cross Jesus teaches us how to live, effectively and abundantly in God and to die victoriously, and gracefully in God. Between the first saying and the last saying, Jesus has hung on the cross for six hours. During these last three hours God has withdrawn Himself from His Son. And because God has lain upon Him the iniquity of us all, Jesus Himself finds Himself estranged from God. But now all is completed. The storm is passing over. The darkness is lifting. His work is done. Our reconciliation has been accomplished. And Jesus Himself is once more in communion with His Father.

And just at the moment when death is beginning to take the final vestiges of life from His body, He cries with a loud voice, “Father, Into Thy Hands I commit my spirit.” . . .

. . . What about you and me? When our days are like midnights. Do we moan and groan or do we affirm our faith in God as Jesus did with a loud voice. Jesus shouted with a loud voice to let His enemies know that He and the Father really are one. That He truly is the Son of God. Jesus finds a focus when He’s going through His darkest hour. And the focus is on His “Father.” And when God lets us hang there for a season, do we have the capacity to stay focused on our Father rather than what’s happening to us? – Want a copy of the entire sermon?
